Former New York Yankees slugger Andruw Jones' Christmas Day started out behind bars -- police in Georgia arrested him for an alleged domestic violence incident involving his wife ... following their Christmas Eve party.

According to the incident report, obtained by TMZ, Andruw's wife called police at 1:30 yesterday morning, claiming Andruw drunkenly attacked her in their Duluth, GA home following the holiday get together, dragging her through their garage and choking her.

Andruw's wife told police she had asked him to help her set up for Christmas morning after the party -- including assembling a computer desk -- and Andruw grew belligerent ... grabbing her and attacking her.

According to the report, when police arrived at the couple's home, they found the baseball player passed out in bed, still dressed in his clothes from earlier in the day. Officers then woke Andruw up and placed him under arrest.

According to Gwinnett County jail records ... Jones was booked for battery and released on a $2,500 bond.

35-year-old Jones starred with the Braves, Dodgers, White Sox, Rangers ... and last season with the Yankees. He just signed a deal to play in Japan next year.

"Starred for the Dodgers" is a stretch. Surprised he wasn't arrested for stealing from the Dodgers.

So sad that this happened on Christmas, never heard of him as a violent person, his wife collaborates with domestic violence charities http://slimcelebrity.com/celebrity-athletes/nicole-derick-jones-is-mlb-player-andruw-jones-wife/

I would hardly call this guy a Yankees star. He didn't play for them long enough. Call him a former Atlanta star.

Oh Andruw! What the heck is up with you? You were such a sweetheart when you were first drafted, and all those years you were with the Braves.

Looks like Andruw Jones hits better in December than Alex Rodriguez does in October.
